Our Story

Tresse_575x575_Our Story_1

Modern tactility

With technology being our main medium of communication, smooth polished surfaces become a familiarity with our sense of touch.  The absence of gradients and textures creates a barrier that dulls our connection to our everyday interactions. However, it is these very sensations that add sentiments to our lives.  The soft breeze on our faces, the warmth of morning rays, and even the rough exterior of untreated wood; all sense of touch is embedded in our memories.  It is through this sense that we connect with the people around us.  The personal experience of touch is the language of Tresse and the driving force behind our woven braided leather products.

The Craft of Leather

Drawing from decades of experience in the leather trade, Tresse’s perfectly crafted accessories are designed to withstand the test of time and transcend the typical boundaries of style for an aesthetic that is unaffected by trends.  Our understanding of leather is translated into specially created weaves realized in durable vegetable tanned goatskin leather accompanied by supple and smooth hairsheep skin leather interiors, a material usually used for exteriors.  This uncommon combination of leathers can only be achieved with intimate knowledge of how different textures work in harmony with each other, to create beautiful woven leather wallets for women and men.

The collection is deeply inspired and influenced by elements drawn from different cultures and heritage.  The idea of the weave holds many different meanings for many different cultures.  The symbolism behind each woven leather pattern contains an individual significance to specific crafts embedded in history.  Combined with our expertise in braided leather techniques and processes, we add a modern twist to designs derived from the past.  We believe that the craft of leather weaving is best preserved in our accessories through adaptive design and most appreciated through the senses.
